Cruise West Awarded Entries into Nat’l Park

Monday, January 26, 2009

Cruise West, the small-ship exploration cruise line, has been awarded by the National Park Service eight cruise ship entries to Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve.  The cruise line also holds two tour vessel permits that allows 105 entries of its smaller vessels. This is the highest number of tour vessel entries allocated to one cruise line. 

“Cruise West is unique as we hold both kinds of ship permits – a cruise ship permit for the Spirit of Oceanus (over 100 tons), and a tour vessel permit for the remainder of our fleet (ships under 100 tons), said Chairman and Managing Director Dick West.

Seven of Cruise West’s ten Alaska cruise itineraries ply the waters of UNESCO World Heritage Site Glacier Bay National Park.  Cruises range from four to 25 days and operate May through early September.  Guests with additional time can extend their cruise with a fully guided Land Tour to Anchorage, renowned Denali National Park and Preserve and Fairbanks or stay at a rustic lodge in the heart of Denali.
